land of Mount Ararat where Noah docked the ark—is a landlocked country which
stretches between the Caspian and Black Seas. Armenian cuisine resembles
Persian, Greek and Turkish foods. This dish, which I received from Armenian
friends in Africa, contains Pecorino Romano cheese made from sheep's milk. Lemon
pepper seasoning is a mixture of coarsely ground black pepper and lemon, and is
a modern way to add lemon to a variety of dishes which originally contained
lemon juice. Serve this exotic dish with the Lemon Lamb Chops.
